This paper elucidates and analyses one of the Muslim intellectual heritage in Indonesia which is phenomenal and cosmopolitan, what is called Islam Nusantara (Islam of the Archipelago). When reading the history of the arrival of Islam in Archipelago, most of the scholars studying Archipelago Islam agreed that Islamization of this area was conducted in a peaceful way. They assimilated and complemented each other to become what is called “citizen of the world”. Derridas called this as a model of universal hospitality or guiding principle to protect people from wars. As a religion of peace, Islam is cosmopolitan. This is proved by the fact that Islam is a religion which includes races and nations. This feature is marked by Nine saints (Walisanga) as Javanese unique agents in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, taking interactionist approach between Islam and local culture. This in turn creates Indonesian Islamic civilization which is called today “Islam Nusantara”, Islam without such obstacles as culture, religion, and nation, Islam with a peaceful face that respects humanity and emphasizes tolerance and empathy to human beings.

Religion is a principle that has been taught since the early age. Therefore, religion is difficult to change and even contributes to form one’s soul. However, it does not mean that one’s religious understanding or religion cannot change. Religious change, which is often synonymous with religious conversion, can be considered as the transfer of mażab (schools) or religious beliefs, such as from Nahdlatul ’Ulama (NU) to Majelis Tafsir Al-Qur’an (MTA). To explain that phenomenon, this study is conducted based on three main issues: the process of conversion from NU to MTA, the basis of its rationality, and further implications. Those issues are examined using qualitative research method, applying phenomenological approach. The following results are the research’s findings: changes on understanding from NU to MTA are often caused by one’s psychological factors, while its complementer is caused by social factors. The process of the changes does not happen suddenly, but gradually with the basis of rationality. There are seven phases of the conversion from NU to MTA, namely curiosity and crisis, quest, encounter, interaction, commitment, consequences, and deployable agent. Meanwhile, its basis of rationality consists of clarity and certainty of the basis of Islam, obedience to Al-Qur’an and al-Hadiṡ, and egalitarianism. The phenomenon of conversion may result in counterproductive effects, such as verbal violence towards the perpetrator and social exclusion. Thus, to avoid conflict, one of the important things to do is to give tasamuh education to the moslem community so that they are willing to accept differences wisely.

Aesthetic phenomenon that is happening in Indonesia is suspected by the election year. Debates between presidents that contain "contempt of contempt", either by quoting the mistakes of a presidential candidate in the past or by searching for incumbents presidential incumbents positively, raises concern for the writer. The immoral act was followed by the phenomenon of the appointment of a former military officer as the Minister of Religion of the Republic of Indonesia in the cabinet “Indonesia Maju” for 2019-2024 working period. Through the reflection on these backgrounds, the author initiated to reconstruct Islamic ethics in the present context. This paper uses the interpretation of Ibn Jarir al-Tabari (d. 923) in his Jamī 'al-Bayan, Jalal al-Din al-Suyuthi (d. 1505) in his Durr al-Mantsur, and Hamka (d. 1981) in his Tafsir Al-Azhar. The author also reads the development of ethical concepts in various literatures diachronically, for example the concept of ethics in al-Miskawaih's perspective and the social-humanity ethics of Austin Fagothey. The final results in this paper are expected to provide a new horizon for various the rightaway polemics. The epistemology of the Qur'ani ethic formed by these three cross-period commentators shows a conclusion that the ethical values in Kalam Allah need to be formatted in humanitarian missions. The author claims HAMKA's Al-Azhar Tafsir as an interpretation of social ethics in the Qur'an that is most relevant to the current context in Indonesia. HAMKA sees that the Qur'anic ethics is able to bring the concepts of faith and piety into social awareness to fight poverty, crime, discrimination, intolerance, and disagreements. The concept embodies the integration between Qur’an axiology in QS. al-Hujurat (49): 11-13 with universal humanist principles such as equality, justice, democracy, protection of rights, and peace. All of these values can be diplocrammed with the spirit of the election of the Indonesian republic's minister of religion who understands nationalism and spiritualism.

This study aims to explore how the framing of Islamic radicalism through the reporting of the group "ISIS" in two online media, namely in Republika.com and Tempo.co with an impartiality perspective. The research method used is descriptive qualitative by using a discourse strategy that sees the text and its context as information that contributes to communicating the contents of the message. Primary and secondary data are obtained from news curators, online portals, and library studies. While the unit of analysis is ISIS radicalism news in Republika.co.id and Tempo.co in the period of August to December 2014 that falls within the three criteria of radicalism news, namely acts of violence, beliefs championed, old-fashioned views or rigid thoughts that underlie acts of violence using techniques framing analysis of Gamson and Modigliani models. The results showed that news about radical "ISIS" included in the category of news construction that was emotional, sadistic, provocative and without confirmation. In addition, the quality of reporting often adorns with words that appear hyperbole and bombastic, the coverage is less profound and changes in a matter of minutes. The trend of Tempo.co and Republika.co.id dramatizes and exaggerates what happens in conflict areas by using connoted language rather than language that has a literal meaning. Then it has not fulfilled the principle of impartiality of news which can be seen from the neutrality and balance of news that determines the quality of reporting.
